AUTOSTAT: Russian car market may grow by a quarter in 2024 4.12.23 - 13:45 AUTOSTAT: Russian car market may grow by a quarter in 2024

The agency has calculated three scenarios of the industry development.

What is preventing the widespread adoption of electric cars in taxis?


Sales of electric vehicles in Russia are constantly growing, setting new records every month. For example, their share of the market of new passenger cars has already exceeded 1%, although previously it did not reach 0.5%. Given the rapid development of electric cars, many experts suggest that by 2030 this figure could reach 15%.

“Electric car mobilization” also affects the sphere of public transport, as evidenced by the appearance of electric buses in a number of large Russian cities. What about the taxi segment? After all, this is a driver with which the domestic auto industry can receive an additional incentive for development. In addition, the establishment of quotas for electric vehicles for taxis is already being discussed by legislators...

At the All-Russian conference TAXI-2023, which was held by the Public Council for Taxi Development in Sochi on October 5-6, the results of a survey on the development of the electric vehicle market and the taxi market in Russia were presented. As it turned out, the taxi business is interested in electric cars, but there are a number of difficulties in their widespread use. Thus, according to a survey conducted by the AUTOSTAT agency among taxi company managers, the key problem in the transition to the “Electric cars in taxis” business model is the insufficient network of charging stations.

It was named by more than 43% of respondents. Also, among the difficulties they may encounter when switching to a new business model there is the high cost of electric vehicles and problems with their maintenance (18% and 14.4%, respectively). We should note that respondents could indicate several answer options, and all others scored less than 10%.

As a rule, they were associated with operating features, lack of spare parts, power reserve and charging. All this is indicated in more detail in the picture. Separately, survey participants were asked the question: “How acute is the problem of hiring drivers?” And there only over a quarter (28.6%) of respondents feel an acute shortage of personnel. Approximately one in three (32.4%) respondents do not experience hiring problems. And 39% admit that it exists, but they cope with it.
